I have been running approx 18months.
I was averaging 25 miles per week. 3X5mls & 1X10mls. I talk myself out of running. I work Mon-Thur so can run after 3pm + Frid & weekends anytime. I'm "Oh yes I'm running today, only to talk myself out of it by 2pm.
Then after tea I'm miserable because I didn't go. But repeat the whole thing again the following day. I did the Blackpool Half marathon 9 min miled to 9miles and felt great it was my fastest time ever, then disaster:- never happened to me before, I felt like someone pulled the plug on my big toe. It happened in seconds it was incredible. Felt sick l could have just sat down, legs heavy, body weighed a ton.
It was very frightening I managed to just trot at about 10.5+ mins/mile. My time was rubbish, and the club gold I thought was in the bag was gone. I still have no clue what happened, but it didn't help the motivation any.Why can't I just get on out there? Why do I always feel like a donky? Wheres my motivation gone? With the drop in mileage I've also added 10lbs and can't get that off. I think i'll just shoot myself.
